The ManyMonths Long Sleeve Shirt has small durable sewn-on snaps on one shoulder to make dressing simple and easy (in most sizes, not in larger sizes). Designed with long foldable cuffs and a well rounded hem on the back side to help keep bigger children warm while they are bustling in the snow, doing sports, or simply enjoying the outdoors. Practical and useful year-round, especially as a thermal base-layer in the colder seasons for staying warm and comfortable.
By combining ManyMonths Long Sleeve Shirt with ManyMonths Unisex Leggings preschoolers and young school children keep themselves warm in all weather conditions. The thin and curly merino wool fibres trap air and help to keep body temperature optimal by accommodating fluctuating temperatures, environmental changes and moisture on the skin. Wonderfully soft and stretchy merino wool rib that doesn't itch or tickle. Gets softer after washing!

ManyMonths® is celebrating their 20th anniversary in 2022! Their woolies are designed in Finland by Bettina, founder and a mom who sent her children to a Waldorf school and saw the need for clothing that is warm, durable and grows with children over many months and years. ManyMonths® is unique in that it has patented features to ensure a wider range of fit. Things like adjustable elastic waist, adjustable leg length, foldable cuffs, buttons to adjust sleeves and romper strap length, and even a bodysuit where the bottom half detaches and turns into a shirt!
When it comes to warmth and durability, the wool is top notch! The 100% merino wool fabric is 380gsm, meaning that it is NOT just a base layer. Additionally, it is ribbed to create pockets of warmth and the fibers are twisted for extra durability when washing. In the current market, wool base layers have a weight of 180-195gsm. Time and time again, parents complain about how easy base layers get holes and that they're sick of paying for wool that simply doesn't hold up. ManyMonths® is different!
